On a tangential note, some of the motherboards have problems when
overclocked with only some of the SATA controllers.  I'm running an Asus
AV8-Deluxe and ran into lockups during bootup using the VIA controller, but
after moving the drive over to the Promise 20378 (non-RAID mode, obviously),
no issues.  It would never have occurred to try this me except for some
comments about this mobo and OCing on one of the OC websites
(http://www.xtremesystems.org/, IIRC).

Anyway, to echo David's response, if a driver works when the system is
normally clocked, I would look to something other than the driver if I
started experiencing problems with OCing (for example, mobo BIOS updates).
